All About GOD - The Christian Community
FAQ: Wow. So even if I've done some pretty
bad stuff, I can still be a Christian? What else do I need to do in order to go to heaven when I die?
God is perfectly holy. Therefore, He cannot stand to look at sin - any kind of sin. All men and women are sinners.
Therefore, sin has separated all mankind from God - including you and me. As a result, none of us can bridge
the gap to God and enter heaven on our own merits.
Since God requires perfection, someone needed to live a life free from sin, and die as a sacrifice for all humanity,
paying the price of death that sin brought to all mankind. That man of perfection was Jesus. He lived a
sinless life, and then gave His life for us so that we might live. Then, after three days in the grave,
Jesus rose again to conquer death and the curse of sin. His resurrection from the dead set us free and
allowed us the opportunity through salvation to spend eternity with Him in heaven. Jesus was the only
person who could be this sacrifice for all humanity. He was perfect, He committed no sin, and He laid
down His life so that we might have life if we believe in Him. Going to heaven isn't about following a
religion or doing enough "good works" - it's about accepting what Jesus Christ did on the cross as payment
for our individual sins. By accepting His free gift of salvation, we can be sure we're going to heaven.
